My wife's 5th-great grandfather, Willis DEAKLE (yes, with an 'A') was born 29 Nov 1805 in GA (perhaps Emanuel Co.) and died 12 FEB 1881 in Union Church, Mobile Co., AL.According to Melba Goff Allen (see http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Trail/1262/Deakle-Andrew.htmlhttp://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Trail/1262/Deakle-Andrew.html) his mother was Susanna DEAKLE (b. 1784 in GA) who was married to Henry MILLER.
1. Was Willis was born out of wedlock? Either Henry was the father, or perhaps Susanna was widowed by (--?--) DEAKLE. 2. If Henry wasn't the father, who was his father (i.e., who was Susanna's previous husband)? 3. Is anyone familiar with the DEAKLE clan who removed from Emanuel Co. GA to Mobile Co. AL and/or Jackson Co. MS? (I have alternately see spellings of "DEKLE" and "DEEKLE".)
